ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Care Assistant at this brand new Barchester care home, you’ll help residents enjoy each day by making sure they get the quality care and support they deserve.
Opening in early 2019 in Edinburgh, Queens Manor Care Home has been specifically designed to provide quality residential care to older people and those living with dementia. Located in the north end of Edinburgh on Queensferry Road, Queens Manor will provide a warm, homely and friendly environment for 60 residents. Its dedicated Memory Lane community, which supports residents with dementia, will offer everything from a sensory garden through to activity kitchens. This is your opportunity to help make this first-class home a success from day one.
You’ll assist with daily living, providing support and companionship – and sharing great moments and memories too. It’s a chance to bring your dedication and compassion to a fulfilling environment. Every day will be different, so you can expect to undertake work that’s as varied as it is rewarding. As a Care Assistant, you could be doing anything from supporting residents with their food and drink and following care plans to ensuring that each of our residents has one-to-one time. It’s an opportunity to put your skills to meaningful use and develop your career.
You’ll need to have an NVQ Level 2 in Health & Social Care, empathy, a can-do approach and excellent communication skills to join us as a Care Assistant. If you have that, then you don’t need any specific care experience as we’ll provide all the training you need to thrive. Above all, you’ll have real compassion for all our residents in order to deliver the highest standard of care and support.
As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:
• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• Access to childcare vouchers
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme
If you’d like to use your people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
